It’s amazing how just a few ingredients can be so delicious. Seriously.
Sometimes I marvel at the power of food…and how it is cooked…and how flavors mingle together…into the perfect meal.
This Artichoke chicken is phenomenal. And I think it’s because the dark meat chicken is slow cooked all day…soaking in the flavors of the artichokes, the rosemary and the basil. Plus, the added depth from the darker meat chicken…oh, so tasty!
P.S. If you don’t prefer dark meat chicken, you could substitute boneless, skinless chicken breasts. It won’t have quite the depth of flavor as the dark meat…but will still be wonderful with the artichokes and rosemary!
